How do I create audio/video submissions?

Record or upload audio/video files as an activity submission or to provide additional information about a submission

The ability to quickly record audio/video files gives you the opportunity to experiment with multimedia submissions like video blogs or podcasts.

If enabled by your school, you can create audio/video files when submitting dropbox activities by clicking the Audio or Video icons.

After clicking Audio or Video, you can:

  • Record up to three minutes of audio or video by selecting the Record radio button and clicking Record (you may be prompted to permit the program to use your computer's camera and microphone).
  • Select the Upload radio button and click Choose File to upload a file.

Tip:  If you don't have the ability to record and only have the upload option, but sure you are using https://
